10 Places To Play For Free This Weekend

  1. The Animal Resort

    Nestled in the lush plains of Seletar is a beautiful farm for children to learn and go up close and personal with docile animals. There are peacocks, cassowary, horse, more birds, fish and dogs for kids to feed and admire. It’s free admission for families, but you’ll have to pay for the animal feed. 

    Address: 81 Seletar West Farmway 5, Singapore 798061
    Opening hours: 10am – 5pm daily

  2. Battleship Playground

    Nothing beats a day out the park for kids, but this will seal the deal for parents too. Right at the end of Sembawang Road is the famous Battleship playground at Sembawang Park, a massive playground for kids to climb, crawl, play captain. Try the spiral tube slides, fireman pole and walk on ropes.

  6. Wallholla @ Junction 8

    This vertical playground is encased in a three-story metal cage with ribbon-like structures. Suitable for active kids aged five to 12, it’s a verticle obstacle course for kids to scale. Don’t feel intimidated by its tall structure. Apparently this has been assessed by safety inspectors to ensure kids will not fall through or get their arms and legs, or clothes stuck on any points. Plus, the surfaces are made of hardened synthetic rubber to absorb shock from falls.

  7. Kids Yoga by Happy Kids Fitness

    An event that’s part of the Singapore River Festival this is a great opportunity to Introduce your little ones to yoga through fun storytelling, games, music, singing and dancing.

    Date: November 5, Saturday

    The mysterious cow is gone, but there are still sea snails, migratory birds, and the occasional wild boar – plus a beautiful, rugged nature to trek about. Older, braver kids can take on the obstacle course or cycle around the island.
